    Try running xorgconfig from the command line. Note that you have to have root permissions to run this command.

    A script will run asking you questions regarding your computer hardware. If you answer them correctly, you should have the correct resolution displayed after starting X.

    Glad you got it going!

    It's a good idea to keep notes handy on what settings worked just in case you have to run xorgconfig again in the future.

    Have fun with Linux...
